  • Starting dog poopickup service. Flush "merchandise" in what?

    Wish that I could find an affordable clinical service sink or a prison cell sink/toilet
    placed in the garage.

    Why flush it, waste of water and doesn't make any sense. Tie it up in a plastic baggy and toss in a trash can with lid, let it go with the trash man. Or start another business selling natural compost and fertilizer...

      Rather than becoming useless landfill, it is far better to have it digested athe sewage treatment plant where it then DOES become fertilzer placed on farm fields.
      Wish that I could compost it.

        Check with your garbage company, most have "organic waste" pickup these days, and I would think dog poop would qualify as organic waste. But, check with them first.

          How about placing it in a paper bag and tossing it in the garbage. Both will quickly decompose in the land fill.

              What great ideas! Thank you.
              The volume will exceed ability to compost and our houses are too close and HOA probably will not allowisible composting.
              We have no cleanout in the yard.
              So far, a toilet bowl in the garage will work. 3-inch waste line is less than two few feet away and I could tie a vent into the laundy room utility tub drain vent.
              I'd take an educated guess - but I'm unqualified.

                  Better to not accumulate until weekly refuse pickup and better to not have bio-waste go to a landfill.
                  Also easier to flush and bio-waste goes through sewage digestion where it becomes useful soil additive.

                    you may want to check with your sewer district and get their OK. In the off chance you putting dog waste into their system causes a main line clog you could be looking at some BIG $$$.

                    I'd think you'd be better off dumping the waste at their treatment plant just like a septic service, but they usually have a min. dumping fee.???

                    Another thing to consider. Is there a distinction in the wording of laws/rules between dog and human septage??? I'm thinking not. chit is chit so basicaly you'd be a septic hauler and fall under those rules.?

                          We have a 'No money - back guarantee'.

                          I don't want to ask if this legal. I would just flush as much as the toilet would handle. Also have a garden hose bib with which I can flood with extra water and can run the laundry room faucet which islightly up stream.

                            I think I see where you're going with this. Not a lot of margin in the dog poop business so you're trying to find a cheap (free) alternative to get rid of the dog poo? I guess you could just drop them a couple at a time down your toilet and then flush.

                              I don't know, I've heard it's picking up.
